Modifying a Sheet View

The Resource Sheet and the Task Sheet display information about your project resources and tasks in a tabular layout. The Task Sheet appears as the sheet portion of a Gantt chart. You can change the table that appears in the sheet view along with the height of rows and width of columns.

For more information about customizing text, see the sidebar, "Format Text Styles and Individual Text," earlier in this chapter on page 771.

To change the table in the sheet view, click View, More Views. Click a sheet view, for example, Task Sheet or Resource Sheet, and then click Apply.

Another method is to right-click the Select All box in the upper-left corner of the table (above row 1). A shortcut menu appears with tables for the sheet view. Click the name of the table that you want to appear.

For example, to see costs in the Task Sheet, click Cost on the shortcut menu. If the table you want doesn't appear on the shortcut menu, click More Tables and then double-click the table ¡0

Tip Display column headings the way you want

As of Project 2002, text wrapping is provided for header cells in a table as well as manual header row height adjustment. To adjust the row height automatically to display the entire column title, click View, Table and then click More Tables. Click the table you want to modify and then click Edit. In the Table Definition dialog box, select the Auto-Adjust Header Row Heights check box.

You can change the height of one or more rows in a sheet.

For information about resizing all rows in a table, see "Customizing Tables," later in this chapter on page 785.

Do the following to resize individual rows in a sheet:

1 To make a row taller, position the mouse pointer between the two row headings (beneath the row's ID number) until the mouse pointer changes to a two-headed arrow and then drag downward.

2 To make a row shorter, position the mouse pointer between the two row headings (beneath the row's ID number) until the mouse pointer changes to a two-headed arrow and then drag upward.

For information about inserting, deleting, moving, and copying rows and columns in a table, see "Customizing Tables," later in this chapter on page 785.
